On Friday, January 14 we learned that two employees from our store tested positive for Covid-19.
One employee works in the deli department, and the other employee works in the bulk department. Their last shifts were on Friday January 7.
Both employees are self-quarantining at home as recommended by their healthcare providers. To our knowledge, neither employee has exhibited symptoms while at work.
We have identified all staff members who may have been in close contact with the affected employees, and we are supporting them as they self-monitor. As part of our daily Covid-19 screening practices, we ask that any employee who exhibits symptoms to stay home, contact our HR department, and notify their healthcare provider. Our co-op has a generous sick leave and vacation policy, and we are working with staff members on a case-by-case basis to ensure they have the support they need.
We encourage anyone with concerns to contact their healthcare professional and get tested when appropriate.
